Pixar's Next New Movie is 'Luca' - See the First Look Photo!

Pixar has revealed their next film, titled Luca!

Set in a beautiful seaside town on the Italian Riviera, the original animated feature is a coming-of-age story about one young boy experiencing an unforgettable summer filled with gelato, pasta and endless scooter rides. Luca shares these adventures with his newfound best friend, but all the fun is threatened by a deeply-held secret: he is a sea monster from another world just below the water’s surface.

“This is a deeply personal story for me, not only because it’s set on the Italian Riviera where I grew up, but because at the core of this film is a celebration of friendship. Childhood friendships often set the course of who we want to become and it is those bonds that are at the heart of our story in ‘Luca,’” Enrico Casarosa, the film’s director, said in a statement. “So in addition to the beauty and charm of the Italian seaside, our film will feature an unforgettable summer adventure that will fundamentally change Luca.”

The movie will hit theaters on June 18, 2021.

Meanwhile, there’s still another Pixar movie that has yet to be released and we’re anxiously awaiting this one!

Glass Replica Disney Castle Destroyed After Two Kids Ran Into It

A glass castle, which seems to be inspired by the Enchanted Storybook Castle at Shanghai Disney, has been destroyed.

People revealed that the replica castle, which is housed at the Museum of Glass in Shanghai, was destroyed when two kids were chasing each other around one of the exhibits when they ran into it.

The glass replica, called The Fantasy Castle, is valued at 450,000 yuan ($64,000) and took 500 hours to build.

A museum spokesperson revealed in a statement that the replica was “demolished”, but will be able to be repaired.

The museum commented on Weibo that “the little visitors knew that their behavior was inappropriate, and, under the encouragement of their parents, reported the incident to the museum staff. Their attitudes were friendly and sincere, and they agreed to help out with follow-up matters.”

Created by the Spanish artisans Arribas Brothers, the castle features over 30,000 individual pieces and is decorated in 24-carat gold.

“Luckily it’s not destroyed. As soon as the coronavirus travel restrictions are lifted, Miguel [Arribas] will go to Shanghai and do the repair. He loves to travel,” Rudy Arribas told Today Parents. “Miguel just is glad people are looking at his beautiful work.”

He added, “We’re used to kids and this kind of stuff happening. Glass breaks. Nothing is done on purpose.”

The Fantasy Castle has required repairs once before, the first time due to vibrations caused by local trains going back and forth.

Kacey Musgraves Rumored to Be In Talks for Vanessa, the Human Form of Ursula, in 'The Little Mermaid' Movie

Rumors are swirling that Kacey Musgraves has been in talks to play a role in the upcoming live-action remake of Disney’s The Little Mermaid!

The news has not yet been confirmed by Disney or Kacey‘s reps, but a report claims that the Grammy winner is in talks to play Vanessa, the human form of the villain Ursula.

TheDisInsider reports that Kacey has had meetings with Disney about the project, though they say there’s a chance she could have passed on the role. Nothing has been confirmed at this point so it should be noted that this is NOT official news.

Kacey previously worked with Disney on the soundtrack for Frozen 2. She performed a cover of the song “All Is Found.”

Last week, Kacey announced some very personal news about her marriage.
